    Didn’t get to reserve the bread toes even with my 9 minute head start. Im debating between going for them online, or waiting and try to get the Off White Vapormaxs

    Good luck, hope you get a pair.

    Took a L on snkrs earlier. Oh well, money saved for me. So much for being a "massive gr" release. Lol

    This is what happens when you get a super-paranoid sneakerhead like myself

    FYI I am NOT a re-seller, and I learned doubling or tripling up is foolish. Via Nike.ca, after almost 2 hours of getting booted/lost connections errors I somehow ended up with 2 in my cart (others had the same glitch). Didn't wanna risk leaving empty handed so pulled the trigger on the 2 pairs. Didn't get any confirmation email, and nothing showed in my order history so was certain my order didn't go thru or got cancelled. Then I ordered another pair from Footlocker later that day.

    Lo and behold, I get the Nike confirmation almost two days later. The two extra pairs I'm either gonna sell to other locals at retail (cuz F re-sellers/scapers!) or just straight up return to give someone else a shot.

    I agree, i dislike resellers, but only adult resellers. As a teenager that isnt getting a job till summer, reselling is one of the few options i have to make money.


    For example, tomorrow Supreme and Vans are dropping a collab pair and i will get them to resell most likely just so i can make more money for myself.

    Finally succumbed and bought a pair of Yeezys after being convinced of how comfortable they are. They run hella small though. I usually wear a size 11-11.5. I had to go up to a 12.

    On the flip side, I bought a pair of PureBoosts the day before and I had to go down to a 10. adidas sizes seem all over the place.

    Highly disagree. First off ultra boosts are ugly, second off yeezys feel way more comfortable.

    Here's my ranking of Boosts:

    PureBoost 2.0
    Yeezy
    PureBoost
    UltraBoost
    NMD

    I've tried/owned all of the above and the ride on the PureBoost 2.0 is by far my favorite. I prefer softer Boost and the UltraBoost is too firm for me.
